It’s been confirmed that a Wakanda series will be on Disney+! Ryan Coogler, who’s also directing Black Panther 2, has signed a five year TV deal with Disney.
From Deadline, here’s what Coogler said:
It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.
I’m truly excited for the Wakanda series. After watching Black Panther, I wanted to see more of that land, and I’m happy that’s what we’re getting. Also, I wonder what other series Coogler is planning on doing since there’s more than one he’s working. Maybe it could be a series about the Jabari Tribe since M’Baku is a fan favorite. One thing I want is that Disney still have TDE involved for the music because they’ve done the best comic book soundtracks of all time. We’ll probably get the series after Black Panther 2, and I can’t wait!
